Likewise, Michael G. sends, "If you want to drain the swamp, don't make a swamp creature Secretary of Labor." And why is there even a Department of Labor anyway? How is that government's business? How is 99% of the things government does, government's business?

Followed by, "Congressional candidate Brianna Wu lies about guns. There was a time I would have said "demonstrates ignorance about", but they threw away benefit of the doubt a long time ago." Someone oughta send her some videos.

(Yes they really are that f***ing ignorant.)

Then, "Our future leaders, from my area of operations, God help us all. To be fair to the U of Iowa, this is a small fraction of the students there, but these are also the ones most likely to try to run everybody else's lives after they graduate. The ones who just want to mind their own business and get on with their own lives didn't show up."

A few months from now, when people start whining about a "drought"....

...Remember there is a concerted and deliberate effort to misinform everyone about everything.

  • "...Democrat politicians, and their bodyguards, specifically exempt themselves from all these new laws."

  • To which dot connect anonymous denunciations without due process.
  • Which segues to Jizya in Rhode Island.
  • And as if on cue, that walls-closing-in feeling in this horrible place. It's not paranoia if they really are out to get us.
  • In only-police-can-be-trusted-with news, Michael G. sends, "Cops fail to maintain control of cell phone crackers. Some are selling off used ones on ebay. And they aren't wiping them either, one security expert bought one and found he could extract details from all the phones it had ever cracked." And why exactly do cops have those things in the first place?
  • I find myself caring less about this sort of thing. In a can't-they-both-lose kind of way.
  • Their system.
  • Work within it.

    Then, "American's don't use three rolls of toilet paper a week, each. Of course, we might have to if the greens keep pushing studies as full of crap as this on us."

    With, a Gun Control Success Story from the place where Britain used to be: "More anti-violence success in Piers Morgan paradise. I notice there is no description of the suspects. Maybe nobody got a good look. Maybe everyone is too intimidated. Or maybe the suspects are part of a protected class, who mustn't be associated with murder."

    And, "Democratic accusations were psychological projection, again. All the while that the Democrats were falsely accusing Republicans of suppressing voter turnout, they were suppressing Republican voter turnout."

    Followed by, "China previews the targeted Orwellian future the left wants for us. The Guardian tries hard to sound neutral about it. Which kind of gives the game away, why would anyone who doesn't support it not oppose it?"

    Foreign Correspondent Jacob N., Trapped in New York, sends: "Accountability? That’s for the proles. Comrade Warren Wilhelm, I mean NYC Mayor Deblasio’s wife makes $850 million for 'mental health' vanish down the rabbit hole in 4 years, and nobody seems to know where it all ended up."

    Followed by, "It's not a hate crime unless a white does it. So an African-American woman beating a 91 year old Mexican-American man with a brick while screaming 'Go back to Mexico!' was not a hate crime."

    With, "Much cited study 'proving' effect of hostile climate on gays retracted. Turned out there was a fundamental math error. Once it is corrected the difference in mortality rate for gays disappears. This Retraction blog looks like something to keep an eye on. How many other cornerstones of left ideology will likewise end up debunked?"

  • Michael G. sends, "Lawsuit against store that sold gun to Sutherlands Sping killer going forward. As many commenters to the article say, this is really driven by deep pockets anti-gunners who, if they can shop for a judge who won't immediately dismiss on the merits, expect to lose in court but inflict a financially ruinous cost on the defendant." Because it's their system.

    Then, "Who is the most intolerant? The ones who constantly tell us how tolerant they are, of course. As an aside, I've been thinking about that retracted study I sent to you yesterday, and I wonder if it explains the vehemence of the aggressors in the wedding cake wars? People like us, whether we support gay marriage or not, figure that it is perfectly reasonable for a baker to say, 'I can't make a cake for your wedding because it goes against my beliefs but I will find you a baker as good or better than me who is willing to make it.' A cake gets made and no one is forced to perform an action. But the civil rights commission, steeped in that faulty study, think, 'By not joyously praising this gay marriage, this baker is stealing 12 years of life from that gay man. That's no better than murder and he must be made to pay!'"

    Foreign Correspondent Jacob N., Trapped in New York, sends: "Well, well. Woulja look at that: Bolshevik Barbie, AKA Occasional Cortex, and her campaign manager played fast and loose with campaign finance laws. If this had been a Republican candidate, this would have been the lead on the news yesterday, with the talking heads screaming for blood. As is, some money will be 'paid back' and the whole matter will be swept under the deepest corner of the rug.

    And the usual kind of censorship too.


    Foreign Correspondent Jacob N., Trapped in New York, sends: "Everything is racist. Including casting a black actor to play a black person, because the actor isn’t black enough." So. There is actual documented proof that they really do judge people by the color of their skin rather than the content of their character.

    One of my biggest criticisms of the Beretta M92/M9 pistol, or any design which uses similar controls (S&W 39/59 family, original Ruger P-series, Bersa Thunder 380, Walther P.38, etc), has been the slide-mounted, hammer-drop safety, which does not allow Condition One carry and essentially forces a transition between double-action and single-action for the first two shots. Years ago I owned a Tanfoglio Witness, an Italian derivative of the famous CZ75, which I was very pleased with until I had to liquidate it for rent money. And now this happens. And not before time. Maybe someday I'll pick up a Taurus PT92, one of the older ones from before the reports of quality control problems (or the built-in locks). -But if I were in a financial position to go buy a 9mm pistol I'd probably go straight to a real Czech-made CZ75 or 85.

  • Gun Control Success Story what "law" would you not enforce

    In Lighter News

    Michael G. points out:

    MidWestReader sends range report: "Rented a current production CZ75B with the newest thin strong-side-only safety, no decocker. I tried it for 100 rounds. I didn't get a picture. I was very disappointed in how well I shot it. I will offer an excuse, as I too often do. The trigger pull and break were quite nice, but I have never felt such severe trigger slap on any firearm. For those unfamiliar, trigger slap is when some of the force of the breech closing and going into battery is transmitted into the trigger as it resets. I've felt it on some imported AKs with poorly fitted trigger groups--it's like getting your index finger snapped in a mousetrap when you shoot, and it will make you flinch in a hurry. It also magnifies the sensation of recoil, which doesn't help. This CZ stung the bejeezus out of my finger if I pressed the trigger with the tip of my index finger, as I would on a 1911, but not if I pulled it with the first joint of my index finger, which I thought was pretty odd. It happened only in single action, never in double action. The gun was quite accurate when I do my part, but it's harder than it needed to be. Apparently it is a known problem, though the cause can vary. Sometimes breaking in helps, sometimes not. Sometimes the bottom of the slide can come in contact with the 'ears' atop the trigger bar as the slide goes into battery and make the trigger jump forward. A poorly fitted disconnector, or a disconnector made from a rough casting, can be the culprit. Sometimes installing a trigger with an overtravel adjustment fixes it. Sometimes it can be a sign of a worn recoil spring in need of replacement. Sometimes putting on a wide target trigger helps. Sometimes a weak grip contributes--and I've been shooting mostly .22 LR lately, it's possible I need more practice with centerfire handguns."

    Couple years back I wrote "It was difficult duty, taking an emotional toll on the crews both at sea and in space. They knew they were killing hundreds, probably thousands of people who refused to heed the leaflet drops and loudspeaker overflights. They also knew that if they didn't fire, millions more in Lii, now their fellow Jeffersonians, would be enslaved, raped, and murdered in their own homes, just as had happened throughout Europe from the 2010s through the 2030s. That had eventually resulted in the United Nations committing the first of a series of genocides, bombarding the Muslim world from orbit. The crew of Vincennes were killing thousands so they wouldn't have to murder millions." By which I meant Immigrants Contributing to Society.

    Burn the government schools which the government forces you to send your children to under threat of government violence as if all the other kinds weren't enough.

    Michael G. sends, "Hate crime in NYC! White male maces transgenders of color... oh, wait, my bad, it was actually a transgender of color macing white males. Obviously the fault of Trump and conservative haters." It's not our side trying to start the race war.

    Followed by Sarah Hoyt's electoral advice from Occupied Colorado. (Magpul making good on their vow to relocate if Colorado passed infringements - and their toning down the jackboot-pandering in the last catalog I saw - has increased my loyalty toward their brand.)

We can't sit back, be apathetic and trust politicians to do right by us. We need to continually place pressure on them so they know we're watching how they're voting and if their votes represent us.'"

    Any Jew who isn't as heavily armed and highly trained as they can possibly afford is pretty damn stupid. Here, have some free lessons.

    All over talk radio today, college admission scandal and is there anybody on that list who doesn't oppose the little people's natural human right to self defense?

    As if more reasons to don't go to college were needed, Michael G. sends, "Diversity coalition seizes college, demands removal of everyone who doesn't think like them. The opposites day progressives show what they want to do to society at large whenever they get they power."

    Followed by "Seattle U takes a week to condemn professor who calls for violence. The update at the bottom of the article shows SU finally responded. I wonder how long they would have taken to respond if a professor came out in support of the WA Sheriff's who say they won't enforce the state's new gun control law?" Fine, you want violence, we can do violence.

    Way back here I noted actual attempts to control people's thoughts. Michael sends, "Zuckerberg wants to build a mind reading machine. And people say Bezos is the tech billionaire who most resembles a Bond villain."

    Now connect some dots. Last night I saw this article on "changing human behavior" and this morning I was sent this observation by C.S. Lewis: “Thus the criminal ceases to be a person, a subject of rights and duties, and becomes merely an object on which society can work. And this is, in principle, how Hitler treated the Jews. They were objects; killed not for ill desert but because, on his theories, they were a disease in society. If society can mend, remake, and unmake men at its pleasure, its pleasure may, of course, be humane or homicidal. The difference is important. But, either way, rulers have become owners.” But they call us "Nazis".

    Michael then sends "Hate crime inflation. In addition to hate hoaxes, the rise in 'hate crimes' can be traced to redefining 'hate' to smaller and smaller acts. The SPLC school of crime statistics."

    Which in turn segues to even more blood libel.

  • To which dots Codrea connects “If you post it on social media, that’s probable cause for us to come get the guns out of your house.” And who will be enforcing that "law" and obeying that order?
  • Remember, peasant, society needs police to protect us from drunk drivers.
  • Michael G. sends, "SJW lawyers care more for virtue signaling than doing their job. I'd say that was good, it's a job that shouldn't be done, except we know what cops are like. There are plenty of innocent people depending on Legal Aid. Still if you follow through to the original 'Are you a Cissy?' post that set this all off, it's pretty funny for anyone who isn't a humorless SJW scold."
  • Remember, peasant, only police can be trusted with guns. Because they have all that training.
  • They like to hurt people and that's why they become cops.
  • Never trust a cop of any kind.

    PCC, pistol-caliber carbines, don't grab me like they used to, except in a retro-cowboy lever-action context perhaps. (At the last gun show I saw a .41 Magnum Ruger Blackhawk, and I know Marlin made a small number of modern M1894s in .41, $igh. Just the thing for feral hog hunting on my post-MegaBall red-state ranch.) But, this innovation pleases me, as it makes it simpler and less expensive for more people to own more weapons of more kinds. Before this you needed a dedicated pistol-caliber lower, or at least more expensive magazine-well adapters to convert your existing lower to Glock magazines or somesuch. This cuts down on that, and also reduces retraining because all the controls and pouches and the like are the same. (Yes that can lead to ammunition mixups but you're supposed to think about that before you do things you're not supposed to have to think about.)

    Couple years back I wrote "Terra's snow leopard, extinct for a century before being restored by a two-century-old Jeffersonian gene bank dating back to the Escape" and now working on it.

    The World Sucks

    Just yesterday I was connecting mind-control dots. For weeks and months and years I've been bemoaning the astounding incompetence of many of the people - some in their sixties and seventies, who should cursed well know better by now! - I work with, their inability to learn the same monkey-simple task after hundreds of repetitions, their total lack of problem-solving capacity. It appears to be several decades too late to BURN THE GOVERNMENT SCHOOLS.

    To which Paul Joseph Watson adds "Technical sophistication has been accompanied by mass incompetence in the art of living." It's not just me seeing it people really are that stupid and useless.

    And psychotically delusional.

    And, increasingly, discriminatory, racist and violent.

    Hey what was Google's motto again

    Michael G. sends, "John Lott messes up again: He brings facts and logic into an argument about gun laws."

    While the Brownshirts of SPLC are ramping up.

    Followed by - connect to this entry's opening links - this is not all Lighter: "6th Circuit: Ohio doesn't have to pay for abortions if it doesn't want to. Left argues that being left to do what they want on their own dime violates their rights. They aren't truly 'free' unless they force other people to pay for it at gun point." Remember this every time you fill out your taxes.

    To which dot Michael immediately connects, "Compelled anti-gun speech at WV's Concord U. Mandatory student fees were used to pay for protest against campus carry."

I've never believed it but if it does ever happen it will be because of the Democrats: 'How can a state that claims to be so much for the rights of immigrants and minorities then ignore our concerns on purpose? They are hypocrites!'"

    To which dot he then connects, "Sanders Aide Who Used ‘Dual Allegiance’ Smear Against Jews Is an Illegal Alien." Yeah well we should know all about Sanders aides by now.

    Followed by, "Global cooling, the real threat. Of course, even when reality convinces the progs their response will be the same: More concentrated central power with them in control."

    Then, all the melting snowflakes.

    With, "So long, Denmark, it was nice to know you. Shame about the suicide."

    And, "Iowa State U student govt. opposes freedom of association. Once the Moo U student senate learned it would apply to groups they don't like, like Christians and Constitutionalists, as well as groups they like, like commies and caliphates."

    And as if on cue. When I wrote "...[T]he government-run schools of the time... treated students as little better than violent criminals, violating their privacy, suppressing their speech...." I shouldn't have worried about it being over-the-top.

    "The United Nations’ body dedicated to 'gender equality and the advancement of women' this week handed Iran a key role in evaluating 'injustice and discriminatory practices against women' – on the same day as an Iranian court reportedly sentenced a women’s rights advocate to 38 years’ imprisonment and 148 lashes."

    In Occupied Connecticut, car companies can be sued for drunk driving. What could possibly go wrong with that legal precedent. "...[A]dvertising and marketing the rifle in an unethical, oppressive, immoral, and unscrupulous manner...." Who the flaming poop is being "oppressed" by an advertisement? Are their eyelids being taped open to watch it at bayonet-point?

  • "No person shall... be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb"OH. WAIT.
  • Gun Control Success Story
  • Remember, peasant, society needs unaccountable agenda-driven government bureaucrats to protect children.
  • Michael G. sends, "Cop body cam BJ story was a hoax. Sorry. I should have responded to the newspaper, 'Pics or it never happened.'" Well, never trust a cop, or a newspaper, of any kind.

    Lunch break at this job is like a kennel of dogs.
    One barks something for no reason,
    then all the rest mindlessly repeat the nonsense,
    yammering gibberish for minutes until winding down

    They'll go on for half a thoughtless hour about
    the capacity of their plastic lunch container
    or a game played with the ball,
    then stand around utterly lost when a car needs a jump-start,
    with a jump box standing in plain sight not ten meters away.
    It's hardly even people I'm working with.

  • As for working within their system, Michael G. sends, "Pleading to manslaughter when attacked in your home. Everyone involved sounds like a textbook example of trailer trash, but the prosecutor is still a tyrant, and has done grievous damage to the rule of law: 'Added to this as well is that the defendant may not have the resources one might like to mount an effective legal defense against an aggressive prosecutor in a life-sentence case. If you don’t have many resources to bring to the fight, especially compared to the prosecutor’s effectively unlimited resources, the prospects for a win diminish even with the law and facts on your side.

    People have lost jobs, friends, even their businesses or homes, through discrimination against natural human rights, not least the right to keep and bear arms. To which Michael adds, "More examples of progs using private sector to attack freedoms; Freedom of Religion in these cases, but I would bet they are just as hostile to the right to keep and bear arms."

  • Michael G. sends, "The bogus law suit against Remington. 'Rule No. 1 of tort law: The bad guy is the one with the most money to pay you.' Williamson has forfeited a lot of trust, but when he's on, he's really on."
  • Followed by, "Cops aren't even trying to sound plausible." And of course 'One officer was wearing a body camera, but it was “knocked offline”....'
  • I have said the police in this horrible place are on the side of the mobs and I was right, again. "Yes, that’s the mayor’s plan.

    Michael G. then sends "An early analyses of Christchurch. 'At a practical level the simplest way to stop shooters is with other shooters and so by far the best way to stop this sort of attack from being repeated is for some worshipers (of all creeds) to be armed when attending a religious service. Not only does (see above) shooting the shooter in the first few seconds cut down on the number of victims, the threat of being shot will strongly dissuade copy-cats because a livestream of a terrorist being taken out in 10 seconds and then dying painfully sends a very different message to a livestream where the terrorist can act with impunity for minutes.' Good advice on how to prepare for being caught in a mass shooting incident, as well as looking at what is likely to happen, what ought to be done, and what will probably be done instead." If your church doesn't want you to be able to defend yourself, I suggest you need a new church.

    Well, f*** New Zealand.

    Hey remember when concerns about gay activists preying on children were dismissed as "paranoid" and "homophobic"?

    Foreign Correspondent Jacob N., Trapped in New York, sends "TANSTAAFL: Oh, look! The Progressives now want taxpayers to pick up the cost of books and housing for college students." He later adds: "The more I think about that article on taxpayer funded books and housing for college students, the more I get annoyed. Buried in that article was a comment about how certain students, even with tuition grants, couldn’t afford to live on campus and not work. Well, heck! I had no idea that living on campus and not working while in school was a fundamental right! I worked while in school (since age 17), and I lived at home with my parents while in college. Most of my friends did the same. I have a student now who is going to dental school in the fall. He’s going to a state school, even though he got into a more prestigious private school, because it’s less expensive. He’s going to live at home with his parents during dental school, because that will save $30K a year. So, no, living on campus isn’t a right, isn’t even important, and damn it, they can work while in school. And don’t get me started on the idiocy of four year liberal arts college for all."

    Don't go to college. It's a terrible mistake.

    There are many admirable qualities to Japanese society and culture, but Japan has never been a free country. Which is a thing I have pondered.

    Then, "There goes John Lott, using facts again. Doesn't he understand that it doesn't matter what the Christchurch killer said his motivations were, it's what the media say they are, and they say he is a right wing conservative Trump supporter." Which segues to:

  • Vegas still stinks.
  • Michael observes, "You can trust cops, they have all that training! 'It’s sad for me to say this, but if you are ever asked to volunteer for any police training drill, you should adamantly refuse. Most of the cops who run these “scenarios” don’t know enough to ensure your safety. Cops and citizens get shot in police training drills with alarming frequency. The only way to ensure you won’t be the next victim is to be as far as possible away from any police training exercises.' He freaking mistook wadcutters for blanks! Not that blanks are particularly safe to fire at people."
  • No due process in New Hampshire which you'll recall recently changed its state motto.
  • Official discrimination in battlegrounds Florida and Arizona. Not that decent people should have to beg extortionate permission from bureaucrat bigots in the first place.
  • Oh look Operation Choke Point lives again. With Project Gunwalker-sauce.
  • Jacob N. then sends something which bears repeating: "But it’s ILLEGAL!?! I don’t know how this one managed to slip past me for two weeks: New York cop made, sold illegal guns, tipped off drug-ring suspect. But but but the laws! They are supposed to prevent stuff like this from happening. And police, they are supposed to be shining paragons of The Law!!"

    Codrea's Law states that anyone who can't be trusted with a gun can't be trusted without a custodian. In a later column he observed the obvious opposite, which I will state as, if someone is not in jail, they should get all their rights, and if they shouldn't get all their rights, they shouldn't be out of jail. Michael G. sends, "Judge Amy Barrett dissents in favor of gun rights, opposed gun ban for non-violent felons."

    Michael then sends, "Jimmy Carter causing extinction of parasitic worm. Maybe he doesn't like the competition? I'm still glad it's getting done."

    MidWestReader sends various things: "Saw a 3" fixed sight blued Ruger GP100 in .357, obviously carried a lot but shot little, lots of finish wear but locks up tight, $325 plus tax. Less tempting was a Kel-Tec P11 in 9mm (polymer DAO 10+1 ultrasubcompact), $175. The trigger is not half bad and perfectly usable, though still long, heavy, and revolver-ish. It also had usable sights with white dots on them. They also had an unmolested Chinese SKS, $399. Saw a used Gen 3 Glock 17 with an olive drab frame and night sights, $379.
    "I have also found a downloadable old version of the QuickLoad internal ballistics software and after several tries--I had to change some registry settings to make it work--got it going, and have been monkeying with it. I've been depriming and resizing .44 Mag brass, but the tumbler is still in storage somewhere. Using its data sets, and proceeding from the basis that some of its bullet shape and length data is close enough for government work (that the bullet that comes from the Lee 429-200-RF mold is at least pretty close to the 200gr 'Cowboy' RNFP bullets I've obtained), it looks like the 200gr .44 bullets in Magnum brass over a 5-8 grain charge of just about any fast-ish-burning pistol powder should give me what I'm looking for. Install the 3.6 version first, then the 3.8 patch. If you get error messages when trying to select an installation language, there are instructions and tools included for making some temporary registry alterations.
    "I get the impression it's rather optimistic about velocities compared to barrel length, and it shows higher pressures than I expected for some old 'classic' loads when I run the numbers (the .44 Magnum 'Keith Load' with 22gr of 2400 and a 250-255gr cast bullet shows as extremely hot, as does the old gun magazine staple 9mm load with a 115gr jacketed bullet over 6.5gr Unique, and the old Internet favorite 9mm load of 124gr jacketed bullet over 6.0gr Unique shows in Quickload as running at near-proof-load pressures despite being lower than some published data from Hercules Powder from the 90s). It also shows that the .40 S&W is perfectly capable of breaking 900 ft/sec with 200gr jacketed bullets out of a 3.5" barrel if propellant is carefully chosen:
    "4.7gr Bullseye, 4.8gr W231, 4.8gr Universal, 4.8gr Ramshot Zip, 5.3gr Unique, 5.8gr Herco, 5.8gr Winchester Action Pistol, 6.2gr Winchester 540, 6.2gr AA#5, 6.3gr Ramshot True Blue, 6.4gr Power Pistol, 6.5gr HS6, 8.0gr Blue Dot, 8.2gr AA#7, all these are predicted by Quickload to be safe maximum loads in .40 with a jacketed 200gr bullet at a muzzle velocity higher than 900 ft/sec from service length handguns. Reduce by 10% and work up carefully, of course.
    "Given that Speer is now making a .40 caliber 200gr Gold Dot bullet, though currently they only load it in 10mm ammo, and Federal is making a 200gr HST that, likewise, they only sell in loaded 10mm ammo--well, it gets me thinking about those bullets as components. I think that either of these bullets loaded to 900-925-ish ft/sec from a .40 caliber pistol would be an outstanding performer, and given the large number of modern .40 caliber service pistols that give the user 13 to 16 round magazines, it seems an optimum combination of large caliber, large capacity, power, controllability, and outstanding modern bullet design for Things that go Bump in the Night. It is not a hunting cartridge, but neither is the .45 ACP.
    "They tell us that interest in the .40 is dwindling, especially in the 'law enforcement community,' largely due to the combination of Affirmative Action and the Glock 22 and 23 service pistols, which are not especially pleasant to shoot in .40, but they were an early design adapted in a hurry from 9mm designs, and Glock has been tinkering with the recoil system since their introduction to try to reduce the muzzle flip. Other designs like the HK USP and S&W M&P were designed around the .40 cartridge to begin with, so they are much more pleasant to shoot. 'They' also tell us that the .45 ACP is selling less and less across all platforms, and some manufacturers are not including it as an option in newer designs, like Beretta."

"It sounds like the deadhead pilot had been properly trained, either by the company or on his own, but that training didn't extend to the crew flying the next day." And whose fault is that.

    I don't know how many people actually read this,
    but I'm posting this as soon as I can and
    filling in the rest of the blogtrawl later:

    Today I transported a vehicle to Salem,
    and it so happened that the destination was
    within walking distance of Guncrafters,
    a proper old-fashioned arms shop run by
    Cowboy Ron, located at 2305 Pringle Rd. SE, #J,
    Salem, OR, 97302, 503-362-6197.
    They had everything from common Remchesters,
    including racks of used ones you can walk up to and fondle,
    to a very respectable selection of handguns modern and classic
    (one Luuuger, Langepistole; of more practical interest were
    the trio of Colt M1903/1908 Pocket Hammerless models), to a
    Winchester M1895 on the wall, chambered in the obscure .35WCF,
    to a rack of Evil Black Rifles, to piles of parts for them,
    and even a few of those Shockwave/Tac14 shotgun things.
    Plenty of reloading gear and components too.
    I almost bought a used Lee double-cavity 9mm mould,
    but I couldn't justify the expense.
    If you're anywhere near Salem or the Highway 22/I-5 area,
    stop by and give Guncrafters some business.
    There are no Quislings there.

    The World Sucks


    Think about the kind of people who don't want you able to defend yourself.

    Dehumanizing a segment of the population is a precursor to genocide. And that's why we own ARs with standard-capacity magazines and stockpiles of ammunition.



    Michael G. sends, "Parkland survivor commits suicide. Not one of the noisy ones. One of the quiet ones who wanted to put it behind her but was used as a prop by others. 'These kids were severely traumatized but rather than being collectively protected, cared for, and treated, many were exploited by our media and politicians for political gain.'"

    Followed by, "Christians, conservatives need not apply for student government positions at UMass Amherst. Massachusetts colleges are even worse than colleges in general, they're all full of MassHoles."

    With, "Chick-Fil-A banned from San Antonio airport for being haters. The gaystapo says so, so it must be true. Oh look, they have 'Chick' in their name, the must be anti-women, too."

    And, "What was that definition of treason, again? In addition to the treason, I love the ingratitude of hating the country and people who saved her life as a child, and loving the people who wanted to kill her as a child."

    Which immediately segues to F*** NEW ZEALAND. Which begins to smell like Vegas.

    Because Immigrants Contributing to Society.

  • Due process also under attack in Tennessee.
  • Private property being outlawed in New Hampshire.

  • Their system turning on itself in Ohio.
  • To which dot Michael G. connects, "Kentucky AG got abuse cases against Boy Scouts tossed when in private practice. Guess the party affiliation. As an aside, I think he behaved properly, he fulfilled his responsibility to his client in a legal manner. But if he was a rising star R instead of a rising star D you know this would be plastered over all the national news outlets."
  • "Now a judge in Wisconsin has issued an injunction against laws legally passed by the legislature by legally elected representatives of the people."

    A very interesting thing in Missouri. I do hope it doesn't lead to the Burning of St. Louis.

    Couple years ago Idaho passed Constitutional Carry, but for state residents only. Incremental expansion, still not for everybody but every bit helps.

    Michael G. adds, "Judge throws out Deerfield IL gun ban." Which is not what we've come to expect from unstable freaks in black robes.

    F*** New Zealand the police.

    A while back I noted a magazine adapter which converts standard PMAGs to use 9x19mm ammunition for pistol-caliber AR15 upper receivers without having to make any changes to the lower. Which in hindsight was probably a more expensive solution than this thing which uses Colt SMG magazines, or these things which use standard Glock magazines.

    And the Lairds of Fairfax stick their knives in our backs too.

    Another Parkland suicide. This death also is the fault of the Parkland schools and the Broward Cowards because the massacre never would have happened if they had done their jobs.

    What if Vegas is also not a paranoid conspiracy theory? We know Dan Rather pushed those fake Bush/ANG memos. We know the Swamp has tried for two years to sell a fake story of Russian collusion. We know there are more fake hate crimes than real ones.


    Never trust a Democrat of any kind.

    Never trust an entertainer of any kind.

    Never trust a college administrator of any kind.

    But they call us "racist".

    What could possibly go wrong.

    So the other day I mentioned that Ethiopian Airlines 737 crash, related to another, and how one properly-trained pilot saved one of them which crashed the very next day with a different crew. I asked, whose fault is that? And I've been going on and on about how nobody knows how to do anything.

    Michael G. sends, "Why do we elites have to waste time pretending to listen to peons? When we know we've been doing an exemplary job, we said so ourselves."

    Speaking of elitists, Michael adds, "Rich little poor girls. They've never experienced prosperity in their lives. I for one would be glad to takeover some of their suffering for them."

    Followed by, "NYU study on illegal aliens: In a nut shell, 'The government should be paying them with taxpayer's money, not deporting them.'"

    And, "Remember, your speech is violence, their violence is speech." "Never forget, the left wants us dead."

    With the ever-spreading homeless problem. -Where do all these people get all those RVs? Are they paying for registration and insurance and following all the rules of the road like us taxpaying suckers? And I'll tell ya, none of the ones I've seen in the local cul-de-sac are particularly sympathetic, nor are their mountains of trash, sidewalk-poo, and snowdrift-piles of discarded drug needles.

    Then, I haven't been following it too closely but there are reports of shakeups in the Southern Preposterous Lie Center, to which Michael muses, "It wasn't just the SPLC president, the legal director also resigned. I'd like to think that they are finally imploding, but the presence of Michelle Obama's former chief of staff makes me wonder if this is a hostile takeover, the Obamas turning it from an allied organization to a wholly owned subsidiary."

    Followed by, "Love trumps hate, and love means you never have to say you're sorry. So there is no need for Dems to apologize for pushing a lie about Trump for two years."

    In F*** New Zealand news, Michael sends, "Guess how many Kiwis actually turned in their guns? Let's just say the press spoke to just about all of them. Of course NZ has registration, so either they will eventually comply or there will be a massive out break of unfortunate canoe accidents. Maybe the Kiwis really do remember what happened to the unarmed, pacifistic Moriori of Chatham island when the Maori arrived, and don't want it to happen to them?"

    Which segues to dehumanizing a segment of the population as a precursor to genocide.

    Your Tax Dollars At Work, teaching your children to hate Jews.

    And propping up violent criminal foreigners.

    And remember, peasant, you're not paying "your" "fair" "share".

    In Massive Vote Fraud news, Michael G. sends, "OpEd calls for foreigners being allowed to vote in US elections. Because a bunch of New Zealand Muslims were murdered by an Australian inspired by a Norwegian who was inspired by German Nazis. The stupid, it burns! At least every comment on it that I saw called out that stupidity."

    Followed by, "NBC cites gun runner to attack Trump admin on firearms sales. A man who is part of the group that tried to run military supplies into Gaza argues that the Trump administration streamlining of regulations on sales of US firearms will lead to greater violence as those firearms flood the market. What, they couldn't get Eric Holder, or any of the other 'Fast and Furious' crew, to be their cited expert?"

    You wanna know why college tuition is so absurdly soul-crushingly high? Michael G. explains: "Duke U faked research, now must pay $100 million. They were studies on lung cancer in mice, the faked results would have been ammunition to squeeze companies between govt. regulators on one side and trial lawyers on the other. The whistle blower who exposed this did it in 2013 and back then the DOJ declined to get involved. Gee, who was running the Executive branch, including DOJ, back then?"

    He then sends, "Merchant ship hijacked by migrants they rescued. Why, it's almost like they are acting like an invading army. Hopefully this will teach other merchant ships to not rescue them. I don't want to hear any talk of machine gunning them in the water though. Improvised explosive devices that duplicate shallow set depth charges are more effective and leave less evidence."

    To which dot he immediately connects, "Poland is selective on who they allow in. Unfortunately this goes to an NY Times article, up to you if you want to go there or link them."

    I have pointed out before that a "no guns" sign is the moral equivalent of "no blacks", "no gays", or "no Jews".

    Foreign Correspondent Jacob N., Trapped in New York, sends "No standards except double standards, and perhaps entertainment rot as well. If it were a white man admitting to drugging and robbing women, the calls for blood would be deafening."

    Followed by "More: Not only does Smollett get all charges dismissed, all the documentation gets shoved down the memory hole within minutes. Now, that’s not even the slightest bit peculiar, right?"

  • Not at all peculiar when you realize it's THEIR SYSTEM, NOT OURS. Jussie Smollett is a lying, hate-filled, psychotic racist and the system is on his side.
  • Let me repeat that: the "justice" system is on the side of mobs and criminals against us, their victims.
  • Remember this when you see any cop, any judge, any courtroom, any prosecutor, any part of their corrupt and illegitimate system...
  • ...OF ANY KIND.

Keep it up guys, maybe you'll cure more Jews of bagel-brain." I repeat, any Jew who isn't as heavily armed and highly trained as possible is damn stupid, and I have tried to help with that.

    Followed by, "Harsh penalties do deter crime. And when Professor John Pfaff says otherwise, he's lying." Which I have also pondered.

    With, "To be Woke, you have to be asleep at the wheel: Amazon still gives SPLC veto power over their charity program."

  • Eric Holder still belongs in a Mexican jail.
  • Remember, peasant, society needs police to protect us from bank robbers.

    A concerted and deliberate effort to misinform everyone about everything

    Foreign Correspondent Jacob N., Trapped in New York, sends "Again with the no standards but double standards: the Southern Preposterous Lies Center screams racism if anyone has the temerity to question the Democratic Party Progressive Orthodoxy, yet the management was both racist and sexist against their office staff. And it’s bad enough that even CNN is forced to notice, but I guarantee that the talking heads will still continue to quote them as authoritative when it comes to trying to destroy people on Our Side."

    Michael G. sends, "Trying to not be racist is racist: '“Saying that you’re colorblind, or that you are race blind, or you just see people for people and not whatever color they are is the epitome of white privilege,” said Alyssa Gostonczik.' Then why should we even bother to try? Also why should we spend the money to go to college, we can find people to tell us how awful we are for free." Add: '“It means that you are denying hundreds of years of oppression to a group and then expecting them to be on the same level as you are, or saying things like, ‘Well, you can anything, you just need to try harder,’ or ‘Pull yourself up by your bootstraps, you got this,’ when that individual is not even close to being on the same playing field as their white counterpart is,” Gostonczik said.' So they're saying people should be held to different standards because of the color of their skin BUT THEY CALL US "RACIST".

    Followed by, "College courageously caves to heckler's veto. Of course we know the reason they caved is that the college administration and faculty agreed with the hecklers. If they hosted a talk by a Venezuelan govt. official in support of Maduro and socialism and hecklers tried to disrupt that they would be arrested and removed in microseconds."

    With, "American education fails and Nat'l Guard surrenders to it: The National Guard is getting rid of its minuteman symbol because American teens were never taught what a minuteman is and don't recognize it, and because 'zero tolerance' policies don't allow the depiction of weapons like the minuteman's flint lock musket." Attributed to the Prophet Heinlein, and if anyone has a proper source please send it to me in the "comment" link below: "The worst part about living during the era of decline of a great civilization is knowing that you are."

    And as if on cue.

    Followed by, "Please, dance in my blood: 'It turns out that a group of students from Columbine High School have launched the "My Last Shot" movement. They're encouraging people to put stickers on a personal item, like a driver's license or cell phone, that says, "In the event that I die from gun violence, please publicize the photo of my death." According to the campaign's founders, the goal is to force people to look at graphic images of gun violence in order to spark change.' How about, 'In the event that I die from ANY kind of violence because I was denied the means to defend myself, please publicize the photo of my death'? I note that none of these students were even born when the Columbine massacre occurred."

    In F*** New Zealand news, he sends "New Zealand gang member points out obvious: 'Sonny Fatu, president of the Waikato branch of the Mongrel Mob, said that, while some members of the gang may have illegal guns, they will not be handing them in as they are necessary to their protection.'"
